Wellsville tennis remains undefeated with 5-0 sweep of Addison


BY CHRIS BROOKS, sports editor,

WELLSVILLE — Off to a phenomenal start to their season, the Lady Lions of Wellsville appear to show no signs of slowing down on Wednesday. With just three matches taking center stage, they would take all three decisions to put on top of two forfeit wins to record the 5-0 match sweep against visiting Addison to remain unbeaten with their seventh straight win.

At first singles, Meagan Riley was outstanding for the Lady Lions (7-0), taking down Addison’s Karlee Boutelle with a dominant 10-0 shutout in pro-set action to help set the tone. Samantha Bidzerkowny would follow with a victory at second singles herself, posting the 10-3 win over Emmanuelle Grasset, while Sarah Mattison was awarded a third singles forfeit to sweep the singles division.

Just one doubles match was decided between the two foes — one that was garnered by a 10-4 victory from the first doubles team of Caitlin Bittel and Hanna Miles, as they, along with a second doubles forfeit awarded to Kelsey Seely and McKenna Wonderling, would help wrap up the match sweep to keep their hot streak alive.

Houghton Academy 3, Archbishop Walsh 0

OLEAN — The Houghton Academy Lady Panthers would begin the night out west in Olean with a first set coasting of host Archbishop Walsh. The victory out of the gate would then set up shop for a straight-set sweep in the next two sets for the visitors, rolling to a 25-10, 25-16, 25-12 victory on Wednesday.

Charging the efforts for the Lady Panthers (2-2) was a magnificent night of service from Jessica Adenuga, as she recorded a game-high 13 aces from the back line to pair with three kills. On the attack, Jessica Prentice would take the lead behind a seven-kill performance.
